DO THE SCIENCE

After a man named Terry Willis emerged from a 20-year coma in 2006, scientists were able to record rewiring of neural connections in his brain. Two points stand out in this story.

One.

The article [note: not clear where the old article is, here referred to] includes images of Mr. Wallis’ brain, the first ones to be taken from a recovering comatose patient.

"We read about these widely publicized cases of miraculous recovery every few years, but none of them, not one, has ever been followed up scientifically until now," said Dr. Nicholas Schiff, a neuroscientist at Weill Cornell Medical College in Manhattan and the senior author of the new study.

Emphasis added.

Two.

Those who favor euthanasia, and abortion, tend not to believe in an eternal soul. If there isn't one, we are even more obligated to do the science and find out what's going on in the body and brain while life exists.

The eugenicists' programs do not stand up scientifically, nor, of course, ethically. We can't find ethics in the brain, or love, but we can at least find neural pathways.
